Michigan’s Robinson Career Ends With New Position

LARRY LAGE,AP Sports Writer

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s Denard Robinson has electrified crowds and broken records as a quarterback.

Robinson college career is winding down in a way that could prepare him to play in the NFL.

He will likely line up behind or alongside quarterback Devin Gardner as a running back or perhaps as a wide receiver when the 20th-ranked Wolverines wrap up the regular season Saturday at No. 4 Ohio State.

Robinson was kept off the field for two-plus weeks with nerve damage in his right elbow. The injury limits his ability to grip and throw the ball, but it hasn’t slowed down his fast-moving feet.

When Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer was at Florida, he recruited Robinson to stay home and play for the Gators.
